List numbering

Postby awm » Wed Oct 15, 2014 12:13 pm

Hi,

I know you're working hard on the new release, but I have a question.
See the attached jpg.
Question: Why does a '1' appear and not a '3' after the list with bullets?
Is there an option to start a list with a self chosen number; in this case '3'?

Hi Walter,

can you tell please how you created your sample?! To me this looks like you started with a numbered list. Then you created an unordered list, which you did indent (Ctrl+Tab) so that it looks like it belongs to the ordered/numbered list. Am i correct? In that case this might look ok, but it is not and is the reason for your problem. CintaNotes does not support sub-lists. Instead try to use "-". You simply enter this using the keyboard. To create a sub-item each line must be separated by Shift+Enter.

Example:
1. dddddd
2. ddddddd
- sub 1
- sub 2
3. ccccc

I did the following:

=> 2x pressing Ctlr + L
Result:
1.

=> typing dddd and <Enter>
Result:
1. dddd
2.

=> typing cccc and <Enter>
Result:
1. dddd
2. cccc
3.

=> 1x pressing Ctrl +Tab
Result:
1. dddd
2. cccc
3.

=> 2x pressing Ctrl + L
Result:
1. dddd
2. cccc


=> typing dddd and <enter>
=> typing eeee and <enter>
Result:
1. dddd
2. cccc
● dddd
● eeee


=> pressing Ctrl+ Shift+Tab
Result:
1. dddd
2. cccc
● dddd
● eeee


=> pressing Ctrl + L
Result:
1. dddd
2. cccc
● dddd
● eeee
1.

I would like to have '3' instead of '1', which is starting a new list what I don't want :)

It's a pity that CN doesn't support subs, but now I know it I'll work with Shift +enter te keep the numbering correct.

Thanks

Hi awm,
Thomas is right - CN doesn't support multilevel lists (just like Wordpad).
The solution with Shift+Enter and "-" character is a working one.

I have just added a note to one of my notebooks where this would have come in quite handy, so I have added a request to the roadmap:

Anyone else interested, please add your votes.
